Nuclear receptor coactivators: master genes for physiology and pathology

O'Malley Bert W

Nuclear receptors control gene expression by recruiting transcriptional coactivators (or corepressors). The coactivators are ‘master regulators’ that coordinately activate multiple distinct transcription factors and target genes and pathways to control major physiologic processes such as reproduction, development, inflammation, metabolism and growth. Because of their central role as regulatory ‘nodes’, coactivators are major targets in the development of nu...
